As we count down these last few days to October 17, otherwise known as debt limit day, stupidity reigns supreme in America. Everyone is wailing about the “imminent catastrophe” coming America’s way if the Congress and Obama can’t come to an agreement to raise the debt ceiling again. Because, it’s obvious to Americans, apparently, that if you’re in debt, the only responsible thing to do is to borrow more money. Again.
The presstitute media has been in full force with fear-mongering story after story blaming one side or the other and accusing one side or the other (mainly the Tea Party) for putting politics ahead of the country. My Facebook feed is mirroring those articles with post after post blaming one side or the other for “endangering our prosperity” or some stupid shit like that. This time around it seems to be mainly attacks on the Republicans for this particular act of the political farce we have showing in the US.
After years of watching the two political parties do this exact same shit over and over again, it just boggles my mind that anyone with half a brain could think there there are actual good guys and bad guys in Washington. Normally intelligent people are parroting all the same stupid partisan talking points they read on the Huffington Post or Fox News and getting very angry at anyone who disagrees with their finger pointing game.
It is amazing what a bunch of dumb fucks the Americans are these days. How it is possible that people with IQs over 80 can live in the same world as you and I and still insist that there is any difference between Republicrats and Demlicans is beyond me. Believing in that tired meme today shows the same critical thinking ability of a pro wrestling fan that insists that, “dude, it’s totally real”.
Hey American retards! Yeah you, the dumbasses who re-post stupid partisan shit on Facebook, pay attention, you bunch of obese mouth breathers:
There is no fucking difference between the Democrats and the Republicans. How have you not realized this yet? What more do you need? We just had imperial Presidents from both parties and their agenda has been the same: Warmongering, illegal surveillance, massive deficit spending, money printing, corporate welfare, fraud, theft, and curtailment of personal liberties, they are EXACTLY THE FUCKING SAME! After the TV cameras turn off they’re all on the same side, and they go share hookers and coke with their Wall Street campaign contributors, get rich insider trading and pocketing kickbacks. Don’t believe me? Look at the great bipartisanship we see when the issue of funding more war or spying on American citizens comes up, or when there is a proposal to limit insider trading by Congress.
Jesus H. Christ, you idiots! How can you not see this? I thought Americans had learned at least something recently when they united to force the warmongers to hold off on their plan to attack Syria. I was starting to become hopeful, and then a month later, the politicians have managed to get us all fighting each other again over this phony political drama.
It’s really worked brilliantly. No one is blaming the system anymore, they’re blaming the Tea Party, and seemingly the Republicans in general. What is no one talking about anymore? Benghazi, the US economic collapse, Detroit, Snowden and the NSA, drone bombing weddings in Pakistan, the debasement of the dollar, and the incredible criminality on Wall Street. All of those more important stories are completely forgotten.
It’s politics as usual in America. Not a single mainstream voice of reason. It’s a disgraceful display of willful ignorance, and this is one reason why America is absolutely at the low water mark of worldwide respect worldwide.
Here’s the situation we are in, you fucking retards:
America is broke.
American politics are broken and neither party is proposing any meaningful change to the unsustainable status quo.
The US government is out of control with their spying, warmongering, moral superiority and economic and military bullying.
When I am out at the bar discussing the outlook for the USA, pretty much everyone agrees with this basic assessment, including the fellow expat Americans I meet. Today I estimate the percentage of expat Americans who have woken up to these facts to be north of 50%. However, the resident Americans, when presented with these facts, always seem to respond, “Yeah, but those goddamned Republicans (Democrats)…”
I’ve written it before: there is no possibility of the USA avoiding catastrophic collapse. But not over the debt ceiling. The problem is structural. The USA has maxed out its credit cards, is spending more than it makes every single day, and has been doing so for a very long time. Even if we raise the credit card limit for the country it solves nothing. Manufacturing is dead, the people are getting stupider and lazier and fatter, the politicians are all 100% corrupt assholes, and the evil banksters and other major corporate interests are eating the country out from the inside.
Americans are intellectually lazy, entitled, clueless and arrogant. They deserve the government they have. When this collapse comes, it is going to get very ugly. Martial law, concentration camps, roving gangs of paramilitary thugs, lack of basic necessities, and war on American soil, all of this will be a reality. And those dumb fucks who let it happen will say, “We never saw this coming.”
They will deserve it all. But you don’t have to be there. There is no saving America, but you can save yourself now while it is still not too late. Get out. Buy gold, diversify risk. Get your money out of fiat ponzi assets. Learn real skills. Build social capital. And try to get as many people as you can in the lifeboat. This Titanic is going to sink and the bigger they are the harder they fall.
